Florida Official Fired For Truthful Social Media Post

During the recent shooting in Orlando, many activists pushed their anti-gun rhetoric and sought to ignore the role of radical Islam in the tragedy. One voice of reason stood out and identified the true feelings of local Orlando residents…and was subsequently fired for his statements.

According to The Blaze:

Florida Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis has been suspended for posting a blistering message about the city of Orlando on his Facebook page in the aftermath of the deadly terrorist attack at Pulse nightclub.

 

“Downtown Orlando has no bottom. The entire city should be leveled. It is void of a single redeeming quality. It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs,” he wrote. “It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril. If you go down there after dark there is seriously something wrong with you.”

 

He went on to call Orlando a “national embarrassment” and mocked the politically incorrect who don’t mention radical Islam when talking about the attack.

 

“If this is an act of a domestic terrorist it is so very important that we don’t publish the religion, name or motive of the terrorist as not to offend anyone,” he added.

 

An official told WFTV Lewis was suspended for violating the State Attorney’s Office social media policy.

 

The post came on the same day of the Orlando terror attack at a gay nightclub that left 49 people dead and dozens more injured.

While it certainly can be considered insensitive in the wake of the attacks, the problem with political correctness is that it hides behind people’s feelings and sensitivity to avoid having real discussions.

To discuss the Orlando shooting, but not address his religion or motivation for the attack, is irresponsible and adds to the mentally retarded logic of the Left.

    As usual, the politicians are ready to fire anyone who speaks the truth.
    What happens to politicians? They suffer rectal cranial inversion.
    As a consequence of their heads being surrounded by excrement, they do not think. That happened in Orlando after the shootings.
    It also happens regularly in Washington DC.

    The remedy is fewer politicians, less costly government.
    America could shrink government to 10% of its current size without deprivation.

    The left are mentally retarded indeed. There is an abundance of evidence all over America which proves it every day.

      I’m not a pychiatrist but I’ve heard the term, “arrested development.” Liberals are emotion driven, mentally about 12 years old. They may have high IQ scores but they consistently avoid coping with facts. Many years ago, Thomas Sowell wrote, “A Conflict of Visions,” a short, easy-to-read book on the differences between the way liberals and conservatives see the world.

    Hey! I thought this was still a free Country where Freedom of Speech can be practiced without the consequence of losing your job! What gives here? I think, perhaps, Mr. Lewis may have grounds for a hefty lawsuit!!
